(TAP) – A fire that broke out on Monday in the Tozeur old oasis was put out, after five hours of intervention conducted by the Tozeur Civil Protection services, a source said.

The fire notably caused a total or partial destruction of about 239 palm trees. The lack of maintenance of this old oasis, the difficult access to some narrow roads and the lack of water points have slowed down the intervention efforts and contributed to the spread of the fire in various places of the oasis, according to the same source.
